A Los Angeles same-sex couple has successfully given birth anally to a healthy 8.2-pound baby for the first time in history.
The LGBTQ community worldwide has received the news of the rectal birth with open arms as the revolutionary medical procedure could enable millions of fertility-challenged couples to procreate.
James Bent, 37, received donated ovaries from his sister, Leila Bent, 32, which were later successfully transplanted into his rectum and which enabled the anal birth to occur.
“I am so grateful to my sister, and to God, for making this natural birth a reality not only for us but for the millions of male same-sex couples which will follow in our path,” James Bent told reporters in tears.
The world’s first successful rectal-ovary transplant was performed at the California Hospital Medical Center’s surgery department in Los Angeles under the supervision of Dr. Peter Krisnawasti.
“This medical procedure will not only be useful to male same-sex couples but also to heterosexual couples where the male partner wishes to experience the process of pregnancy for himself,” Dr. Peter Krisnawasti told reporters.
Other researchers believe that rectal-ovarian transplants could even be performed upon certain animals such as cows and pigs in the near future.
“It is not unimaginable that in the near future, fertility-challenged couples will be able to transplant their ovaries into the rectum of animals such as cows and pigs and bypass the pointless and painful hassle of the pregnancy process altogether,” one researcher at California Hospital Medical Center explained when reached by phone.
Many analysts believe the revolutionary medical procedure performed under the supervision of Dr. Peter Krisnawasti could win the world-renowned surgeon the Nobel Prize in medicine.
